I think we need volunteers who want to willingly work for PCMag review and correct this confusion of their releasing reports yearly,

First MBAE is pretty obvious not a fully pledge Antivirus, + it should not be include on the list prior incomplete on Malware Blocking and URL test.

Second not convinced because they have a little conspiracy on their testing purpose and lastly Bitdefender Free isn't first this time unlike before and last several years. ;)

Bd free malicious url blocking on the comparison table is mentioned as "N/A".
In the full review, Bd free detected impressive 91% malicious url links, thats the top score on the table.
In the full review, for phishing protection, he mention Norton is the champ & only McAfee beat Norton by 4% & Bd free beat Norton by 1%, thats the top score for the free AV.

I simply use Norton ConnectSafe DNS with Comodo. This config provides same web-filtering as Norton.

Configure Norton DNS in Windows Network via Control Panel.

I will try Norton DNS.
Previously I have tried Comodo, Google & Norton DNS but faced little slow down compared to ISP.
DNS Benchmark from grc.com also shows my ISP DNS the fastest, Google 2nd. Norton DNS was not there.

Norton DNS blocking page is good & clear or filled with ads & paid version upgrades?
Does it works good i.e doesn't goes down?

anyone tried DNSangel? Norton web filter is pretty good.
I haven't tried DNSAngel. Norton is good so far from what I see - even blocks Virussign and other malware pack download sites.

As I am currently testing Comodo on a couple of systems - which has little web-filtering - I am trying out different options: PeerBlock, Norton ConnectSafe DNS, etc.

Those options beat importing malicious hosts files manually into Comodo.

Using Norton DNS now with porn blocking.
Working fine.

Does Norton DNS without porn blocking & DNS with porn blocking makes any difference with speed, etc...?

On Norton website I saw Norton Identity Safe & its free. It has password manager & website protection.
I installed to check it. It seems the same as the integrated one in paid Norton Security.
So the protection provided by website protection in Norton Identity Safe & protection provided by Norton DNS will be same, right?

Hows Norton Password Manager?
Any experience with it?

Norton Password Manager is OK. Doesn't have advanced features like LastPass - which I never used the advanced features anyway. Basic password manager good enough.

No difference in speed using porn blocking and without it.

Norton ConnectSafe DNS just as good as browser plug-in.
